Welcome to WESM-FM on January 7th, 2023. This station is The Soul Show’s second HBCU affiliation — yayy! It serves Maryland’s Eastern Shore and beyond, and beams into Virginia and Delaware. To kick it off, TSS will broadcast a tribute to artists lost in 2022. Also, we’ll feature Carla Thomas, the queen of Stax Records who turned 80 in December.
